    Default Perfume Etiquette : Should I wear perfume when being an invigilator ?

    This Sunday, I need to be an invigilator for our national test for positions in my organization.

    But I am not sure about 'the perfum etiquette'.

    Should I wear perfume as it could distract the candidates ?

    If I can wear perfume, which one from my collection should I wear ? I need to wear thick uniform that cover from neck to feets.

    I think you will be fine wearing perfume.
    Just don't overfume and you will be okay !

    I'd stick to a light scent.

    Thanks for your advices.

    I think I might use Un Jardin sur Le Nil or Un Jardin en mediterrene as they are so light, fresh and inoffensive.

    Any scent is fine but I agree: just go light.

    Ahh - invigilation ... pacing up and down the examination hall, watching out for cheating, nervous breakdowns, exhausted ballpoint pens, full answer books ...

    I've invigilated many times and have worn perfume. Never received any complaints. The candidates minds are focused on the test and noise/nerves are the biggest distractions. They're more likely to complain about your squeaky shoes. Bear in mind you may have to lean in close to talk quietly to someone though, so, yes, keep it light. The Jardins sound fine.

    Agree with the others. Go for it, but avoid overapplication.

    I would say NO. Why? Because if you're so worried about it that you require the counsel of basenotes, then you aren't ready to wear fragrance for these types of functions.

    For YOU no....for others YES.

    Anyone can wear a pink shirt, but if someone says "is it ok to wear a pink shirt" then the answer is no. Make sense?
